Do you have the key for Davy Jones locker?

Immerse yourself in a nautical, pirate-themed world of negotiation and tactical networking as you develop key skills while formulating effective bonds with co-workers.

Boasting an exciting and engaging premise, teams must focus on both independence and teamwork in order to succeed at Trade Winds. The fast-moving, highly immersive nature of this team building activity makes it ideal for exploring key skills including negotiation, information gathering, networking, and understanding customer needs. This is certainly not a game for the faint-hearted!

How Does it Work?

Teams must work to accumulate as much treasure as possible, building relationships with other teams and gathering vital market information to give them the advantage. The winner is the team with the most ‘booty’ at the end of the game!

Embracing the pirate theme, each team plays the role of the crew of a pirate ship, arriving with a hull full of ‘booty’ to trade. The game takes place in four cycles, each representing a year. Each year of the game begins with teams trading and ends with them returning to port to collect the bounty on certain goods. As the game progresses, teams develop relationships with other teams and share gained knowledge.

Team Challenge Company’s highly experienced, professional team will be on hand throughout the process to ensure your event goes as smoothly as possible. From the initial enquiry through to the day itself, our knowledgeable team will be available to take the stress away and answer any queries or concerns you may have.

Rewards and Learning Outcomes

Regardless of which team wins, all participants will come away with a whole new host of transferable skills and key points to focus on at the end of the event.

Trade Winds is designed with specific learning outcomes and tangible results in mind. We utilise our extensive experience in developing and organising team building events to engage participants, develop their skills, and encourage effective communication between employees.

This is a quick and clever activity where teams must trade and negotiate in order to maximise their returns and work their way to victory. Although this is a competitive exercise, the most successful teams are the ones which collaborate with others to build win-win outcomes, whilst simultaneously focusing on their own bottom-line results. Winning strategies are shared during the review process, where relevant learnings are applied to the workplace environment.

Here at Team Challenge Company, we are committed to designing and offering valuable, effective team building events and activities to benefit both employees and the business as a whole.
